Description

A talk by Tim Mashall about his new book Divided: Why We're Living in an Age of Walls?

We thank both Cllr Dan Cohen and GSAL for generously sponsoring and hosting this event.

New from the No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Prisoners of Geography

Which side of the fence are you on?

Every story has two sides, and so does every wall. We’re in a new era of tribalism and the barricades are going up.


Money, race, religion, politics: these are the things that divide us. Trump’s wall says as much about America’s divided past as it does its future. The Great Firewall of China separates ‘us’ from ‘them’. In Europe, the explosive combination of politics and migration threatens liberal democracy itself.

Covering China; the USA; Israel and Palestine; the Middle East; the Indian Subcontinent; Africa; Europe and the UK, in this gripping read bestselling author Tim Marshall delves into our past and our present to reveal the fault lines that will shape our world for years to come.

Tim Marshall is a leading authority on foreign affairs with more than 30 years of reporting experience. He was diplomatic editor at Sky News, and before that was working for the BBC and LBC/IRN radio. He has reported from 40 countries and covered conflicts in Croatia, Bosnia, Macedonia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Israel. He is the author of the no.1 Sunday Times bestseller Prisoners of Geography; Worth Dying For: The Power and Politics of Flags; Divided: Why We’re Living in an Age of Walls; "Dirty Northern B*st*rds!" and Other Tales from the Terraces: The Story of Britain's Football Chants; and Shadowplay: The Overthrow of Slobodan Milosevic (a bestseller in former Yugoslavia). He is founder and editor of the current affairs site TheWhatandtheWhy.com.
